From 2001 through 2012, the Ad Hoc Committee on Prompt Payment worked to
ensure that physicians and hospitals receive timely payments for services rendered. Outcome options included: (a) collection of data on timeliness (or lack thereof) of payments for physicians and hospitals (b) describe/analyze the process for information gathering to resolve issues presented; and, (c) present options for problem resolution. The Task Force also worked to develop and advocate for all payer organizations in the state of Michigan to adopt a single set of rules for claim submission and processing in order to ensure uniform interpretation across payers.
The area of timely payment and claims processing is now the responsibility of the GFHC’s Quality & Innovation Task Force.
